The Mix of Stuff
Rush Ranch – Oregon
Wx: Cloudy, 30F
It’s amazing how fast the weather can change in the Grande Ronde Valley. It’s been much warmer the past few days and the warm wind is melting the snow down to the soil line. There are even some green shoots of grass springing up in the fields. I am most concerned for the baby calves being born at this time of year – it can get very cold at night, but I suppose being snuggled up to a mother that weighs over 1,000 pounds would keep the little one snug and warm. Our house cat Oscar has even ventured outside for 10 minutes at a time to feel the edge of spring so near. Funny how each one of us in this household has stood outside on the deck during these past few days, eyes closed, face forward, feeling the faint breath of spring. I think that we all have had cabin fever!
I have a mix of downloads that I haven’t linked to my blog in the past, so I thought that I would put these additional resources up for you. They don’t have a particular theme but may be useful in filling out your digital library.
